Arriving from the future, today, the Velis Electro is the greenest way of learning to fly!

Pipistrel are pioneers in alternative propulsion and our electric journey started in 2007 with the world's first 2 seat electric aircraft the Taurus Electro. Today the Velis Electro is the first ever type certified electric powered aircraft, fully approved for pilot training in Day VFR operations in more than 30 countries worldwide. Ease of operation with an intuitive powertrain and impressive ergonomics come as standard. Velis Electro is optimized for pilot training as part of the Velis family of aircraft with demonstrated levels of safety built on over 15 years of Pipistrel expertise in electric flight.

The Velis Electro produces zero emissions during operation and with noise levels of only 60dBa is ultra-quiet both on the inside and outside. A revolution in sustainable flight, a game changer for ease of operation is not easy. You no longer have to dream about the future of sustainable flight, it is here and the Velis Electro has set the standard for electric flight.

As part of the Type Certification, Pipistrel demonstrated that Velis Electro achieves the highest levels of safety, even surpassing those required for conventionally powered aircraft.

Velis Electro is a full-electric derivative of the proven Virus SW 121, which is already type certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (TC No EASA.A.573). It is equipped with a Pipistrel type certified electric engine E-811-268MVLC (TC No. EASA.E.234), developed with partners EMRAX and EMSISO, and Pipistrel's three-bladed composite fixed pitch propeller P-812-164-F3A. The 57.6kW liquid cooled electric engine provides power to the aircraft.

The power is delivered by 345 VDC electric system built around a liquid-cooled in-house developed high performance battery system, which includes two Pipistrel PB345V124E-L batteries connected in parallel, installed in a redundant 2-unit arrangement, total nominal capacity 24.8 kWh. Crashworthy, thermal runaway inhibiting, HIRF/EMI tolerant.

One battery pack is located in the nose of the airplane and the second behind the cabin. This ensures redundancy of the power source: in case of battery failure, the malfunctioning battery would get automatically disconnected from the system. A single battery is capable of standalone operation and has enough power capability to support climbing and continuation of flight.

Engine Specifications

The Velis Electro was designed to be simple to operate and maintain with no compromising safety. Power comes from Pipistrel's own type certified electric engine the E-811 producing 57.6kW from a 345 VDC electric system and in house developed dual battery system. This revolutionary powertrain is entirely liquid cooled, can be charged through the on board charging port with an external charger and has demonstrated levels of safety equivalent or higher than conventionally powered aircraft.

The liquid-cooling system consists of a radiator and two electrically driven pumps installed in series, located behind the rear battery pack. An air inlet for the radiator is located on left side of the fuselage, and the warm air leaves the fuselage at the bottom. Two high power axial fans are installed behind the radiator in order to allow battery cooling during charging. The fans are automatically controlled and monitored by the BMS for seamless operation.

Batteries can be charged via an onboard charging port using a Pipistrel electric charger. The whole operation is overseen by the Main computer, which displays the status of all systems on the Pipistrel EPSI 570C.

Avionics

Unlike a start-up procedure of a conventionally powered airplane, the Velis Electro is powered-up by four switches and requires no warm-up time before take-off. This paradigm shift coupled with unprecedented quietness both inside the cockpit as well as from the outside, the Velis Electro truly is a game-changing aircraft to revolutionise your organisation and empower a new generation of aviators.

Avionics include the Garmin Aera 660 for navigation, ADSB and Weather, with Pipistrel powere and monitoring systesm as well as a Horis Artificial horizon.
